This automated system is comprised of eight low profile conveyors fed by roof-mounted storage vessels, with each group of four conveyors feeding either of two gain-in-weight hoppers that gravity discharge through the mezzanine floor to a ribbon blender at ground level.
The enclosed, dust-free conveyors can handle products ranging from sub-micron powders to large pellets, including those that pack, cake, plug, seize, smear or fluidize, with no separation of blended products.
The only moving part contacting material is a flexible inner screw that maximizes reliability while reducing maintenance. The removable screw and tube interior are smooth and crevice-free, allowing rapid, thorough cleaning.
Flexicon Weigh Batching System for mezzanines and other low headroom areas utilizes Low Profile Flexible Screw Conveyors configured with drive motors at the inlet end of the conveyor, significantly reducing height and width requirements at the discharge end.
